Aims To report the longer term outcomes following either a strategy of endovascular repair first or open repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, which are necessary for both patient and clinical decision-making. Methods and results This pragmatic multicentre (29 UK and 1 Canada) trial randomized 613 patients with a clinical diagnosis of ruptured(More)
BACKGROUND Salvage therapeutic options for biochemical failure after primary radiation-based therapy include radical prostatectomy, cryoablation, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), brachytherapy (for post-EBRT patients) and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). ADT and salvage prostate cryoablation (SPC) are two commonly considered treatment options(More)
We report a case of bilateral consecutive renal autotransplantation for the loin pain/hematuria syndrome. Initial good response was followed by recurrent consecutive pain in the transplanted kidneys, necessitating bilateral graft nephrectomy and renal hemodialysis.
PURPOSE Baseline bone mineral density scanning in patients about to commence long-term androgen deprivation therapy for advanced/metastatic prostate cancer is reported to show a high incidence of osteoporosis and osteopenia. We investigated the incidence of existing spinal osteoporotic fractures in this population as this is known to be a risk factor for(More)
AIMS To investigate whether aneurysm shape and extent, which indicate whether a patient with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is eligible for endovascular repair (EVAR), influence the outcome of both EVAR and open surgical repair. METHODS AND RESULTS The influence of six morphological parameters (maximum aortic diameter, aneurysm neck diameter,(More)
Little attention has been directed towards reconstruction of the mandibular condyles in adult patients with rheumatoid arthritis, other than with allogenic implants which are now known to cause serious complications. There is a relatively high incidence of condylar erosion and breakdown in rheumatoid arthritis, often leading to anterior open bite and(More)
